That's a bummer, for sure.  I started using rice hulls as insurance.  Don't always need them, but I haven't had a stuck runoff when using them.

  I wear eye protection when I work on my pineapple patch.

Better safe than never, I always say ;)

Because the Night - Patti Smith

I built a fermentation chamber from 2X4s, 2" foam insulation, copper refrigeration tubing and a glycol chiller.  The chiller would be the most expensive part, unless you get it for free. ;)  As you have the $$ for Blichmann fermenters I suggest wrapping refrigeration coil around them and then using blanket insulation over that and using a glycol chiller and controller for temp control.

Great article Ron.  I have used the Texas Crutch technique before with very good results.  The meat was awesomely tender, but the bark suffered for it.  I guess I could have done the high heat before serving thing to improve the crust, but I must say this last one turned out pretty darn good!

Made a brisket on Saturday.  Turned out great.  Nice bark, could hold up to a knife, but was nice and tender.

I finally got the garden in last weekend.  I have Napa grape hybrid, large cherry, early girl, big boy, better boy, Roma, and Tomatillo tomatoes, California Wonder, Cajun Bell, Sweet Cherry hybrid, jalapeno, Sweet Golden Cali Wonder Peppers, Yellow Crookneck Squash, Zucchini, Straight 8 and Bush Pickling Cucumbers, Rhubarb, Hybrid Eggplant, Kentucky Wonder pole beans, Dill, Italian Oregeno, Purple Sage, Thyme, an Parsley.  I'm sure I forgot something but this is to the best of my memory.

I started some asparagas root this year but won't get a harvest from that until next year.

Of course my hops but that's a different thread.

I'll post some pics soon.  :)

Don't forget Rosemary ;)  Sorry, couldn't resist.

Putting a Berliner Weisse in the secondary, adjusting carbonation and dry hopping an IPA, clarifying a Belgian Blonde ale, making a starter for a Czech pils, and taking a nap. :)

Yeh volume speaking for a 5 gallon batch, pull the first gallon of wort and reduce down minimally to a half gallon, I reduce to a quart.

I usually take it down to a pint as suggested by skotrat.  It gets very thick at that point.

We munched our first 4 artichokes the other night. with melted butter and grapefruit (we were out of lemons). They were small and some of the stems were a little bitter but there is something magical about eating artichokes you grew your self.

still got to get the last of the tomatoes transplanted.

corn is sprouted and we are ready to plant our beans in with them. then squash a week or two later. vacation is coming up in just over a week so lots of time to putter in the garden.

Awesome on the artichokes.  We tried growing them a few years ago, but they just didn't do well for some reason.  i think the growing season here may be too short.
